YouTube Viewing Options for Your Classroom July 20, 2011

I love showing YouTube videos to my students, but sometimes the advertisements, comments, or even parts of the videos are not suitable for my students eyes (or ears).  Here are two resources that were discussed in 5 Useful Webtools You Don’t Know Exist.

  1. ViewPure.com – Make sure when you show a video to your class, that’s all you’re showing them! Get rid of the advertisements and comments on a YouTube video – all you need is the link to the video.  You can even add this tool to your browser for easier use next time you see a video you want to purify!
  2. TubeChop.com – Only want to show a few seconds of a video or a couple of minutes of a longer video?  Put the YouTube URL of a video inside TubeChop, and select the part that you want.  When you’re finished, you are given a link and embed code for the cropped version of the video. (Yeah, I am using a Bud Light Commercial as an example.)
  3. Chopped Video

I ♥ EdTech by SimpleK12 is a wonderful source of information for the tools available out there.  Some I have known about for awhile, some I use on a regular basis, but there are times I come across new ones that I didn’t know existed.  I am so thankful to SimpleK12 and to those that create these wonderful tools!
